IndiaEnvironmentPortal.org.in will source government documents and make them available for public scrutiny. The portal will also provide links to government institutions and add names of researchers and institutions, working in the field of environment.

“This is a people’s portal. It will actively collate and exchange data, research and information from people working in the field, in campaigns, in scientific institutions, in research and in industry. This best practices directory, what we call, our survival guide, will help each person in doing more to protect the environment,” Sunita Narain, director, Centre for Science and Environment, has said.

“It is our effort to put government information in the public domain and to build dynamic and networked knowledge-based societies,” Sam Pitroda, chairman, National Knowledge Commission, has said. The content of the portal is currently in English, but there are plans to make it available in other languages as well.
